NEW YORK – Hello Giants Fans, the preseason ends tonight for Big Blue as they face the Patriots in New Meadowlands stadium at 7 PM EST. I’m truly surprised how quickly this preseason went by. It seems like it took forever to arrive and now it will all be over by midnight. The next time the Giants get on the field it will be in a regular season game against the Carolina Panthers. The Giants will be playing their first ever “real” game at the New Meadowlands stadium. This is a game that fans will want Big Blue to win and win convincingly. Giants fans have started to hate the Panthers on a level that could rival their division foes. It seem that the Panthers have had the Giants number for the past five years or so. The Giants Nation will not want to lose this game to them.
But for now, let’s get back to the game at hand tonight against the Patriots. This is the fourth and final preseason game so don’t expect too much from the players. At this point, all they want to do is stay healthy for the regular season and the coaches would adamantly agree with them. The team has already placed five players on season ending injured reserve and one player on the PUP list. Not to mention the fact, that a handful of players are playing banged up. Still, the first quarter should be entertaining with the starters in the game, as the team gets in their final tune up before the real deal the following weekend.
The Patriots still remember the thorough beating they suffered at the hands of Big Blue in Super Bowl XLII. It was the greatest upset in Super Bowl history with the greatest play in Super Bowl history, both accomplished by the New York Giants. The Patriots are getting old and I expect them to miss the playoffs in 2010. There is a new glamour team in their division called the Jets and just like the failing Boston Red Sox, the Patriots will need to rebuild if they have any chance at the post season in the near future. Not that it matters but I will take the Giants to win over the Patriots tonight by two touchdowns.
Who do you think will win the game between the New York Giants and New England Patriots tonight at 7 PM EST?
